funny to be called free pass - because it is not free but well worth it. transition between all modes of transportation is seamless and easy - no waiting to buy tickets at each stop. best is to do overnight trip from tokyo because the pass is good for two days - gives you more time to use it and...

The Hakone Free Pass costs about ¥5000 from the Shinjuku train station (Odakyu Tourist centre) but is a worthwhile investment considering that it allows you to travel around Hakone using every possible mode of public transport available (train, cable car, ropeway, bus and even a cruise). For a faster ride, buy the romance car ticket that enables you to ride... More

Definitely the easiest way to navigate Hakone attractions. Don't balk at the price 5000 yen - having all your tickets together smooths the way and allows you to enjoy the views and experience worry free.

So buying a "2-day" Y3,900 pass, might not have been financially better, but it certainly was easier than trying to price out fares individually for the 5 various types of transport (train, cable car, ropeway,...

This pass is very good value although, unfortunately, it's not actually free. In 2012, it costs Y5000. It includes a return train trip from Tokyo to the Hakone area and then up to 2 days use of local buses, cable cars, trains and the pirate cruise boats on Lake Ashi. It also gives discounts at local attractions etc. The Rapid... More
